Sitting in the blind waiting on hogs and turkeys are roosted about 50 yards away. Gobbling like crazy!

Don’t think the birds are quite on schedule in western blanco county just yet. Didn’t make it out here before daybreak, so missed any potential roost gobbling. Haven’t heard a peep calling the entire perimeter of this small piece. Have glassed a lot of country from a high point and nothing seen.

No luck this morning

Kayden said she wants to take a break this evening so it’ll just be Logan.

Kayden will be back at the same spot tomorrow morning. Not sure how I can get the flock to come in.

Kayden wants to go so we’ll see how long she lasts.

Good to hear Kayden didn’t really need a break after one morning of hunting.

Good luck!

It’s been unusually quiet here. We heard less than 10 gobbles all day and we were probably within hearing distance of gobblers the entire time.

Hoping today’s different

After getting our butts whipped yesterday, I decided to be a little more aggressive this morning. I knew our hunt would be over by 8am one way or the other. We’d either get a shot or the flock would pass us by

The birds use the exact same trail to get to our feeder up by the camp house. So we setup on that trail about 50 yards from the feeder. Sitting at the feeder wasn’t an option as it would be too hectic for Kayden to get a shot amongst 40+ birds. My hope was that the flock would pass us and the gobblers would stop at our decoys.

Like clockwork, the entire flock was heading our way at 7:50. But this time, 3 jakes were leading the way. The jakes ran straight to our decoys and started beating the jake decoy. Kayden asked me “are those daddy turkeys?” and when I said yes, she was ready to shoot. I clicked off the safety and she squeezed off.

Her turkey was behind the decoy with his neck stretched as he was pecking and posturing up the the decoy. It gave her a perfect target and her shot was perfect!

Immediately after the shot, she began shaking like crazy. It was awesome to see her so excited.

As a dad that turkey hunts, it doesn’t get any better!

Should be a good season for all! My grandson shot his first gobbler at 4 years old and has been hooked ever since. Last year at seven he got the only two gobblers killed on our lease.HA!
Haven't heard the last of that from everyone.
